Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to read over the weekend.
Lisa Romeo earned her MFA five years ago. What does she have to show for it? (Read this eloquent and honest piece, people. You won’t regret it.)
For your weekend literary listening: “Andre Dubus III & Edith Pearlman: A Reading & Conversation, Sponsored by the PEN/Faulkner Foundation,” courtesy of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP).
With a little help from Ben Yagoda, Carol Tice presents “7 Simple Fixes” for writing mistakes.
Ron Charles reflects on Amazon.com’s “New Books” suggestions. (I am compelled to add that these suggestions may have some usefulness for book reviewers looking for not-yet-published titles to review.)
Finally, I’m not sure exactly which of my Twitter connections pointed me to Mashable’s “Complete Guide to Twitter Lingo,” but I think that Twitter newbies, especially, may appreciate it.
Happy weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday!
